Search Relevancy Improvement Service

Continuous Search Relevancy Tuning is Key to Better User Experience.


The search relevancy tune-up service is aimed at existing search implementations in need of improvement. Common circumstances include:

  • Dissatisfaction with search relevancy
  • Query speed or throughput issues
  • Difficulties getting value from advanced search features
  • Suspicions that the indexes are not complete


This service typically comprises:

  • Onsite investigation: A search expert will conduct an independent, onsite audit of the current status and configuration of the search application, including a review of the data landscape and end-user requirements
  • Architect review: The information gathered will be reviewed with a senior search architect, and a customer call will be conducted to present and discuss initial findings
  • Detailed report: A detailed Assessment Report will be provided, complete with issue analysis, recommendations, and a suggested action plan
  • Implementation strategy: We will present a project plan addressing the issues and business objectives identified. This plan can be executed by the customer's in-house team or by Search Technologies
  • Search engine scoring: A process of continuously enriching, testing, and scoring your search application's performance to ensure long-term relevancy and agility. Check out our deep-dive on search engine scoring.
